Reply To: Tell me about plasma exchange
I have had plasma exchange the first year of my CIDP treatments, all 3 times I entered the hospital unable to walk. My progress with each stay was the first exchange I get my legs back the next day then with second exchange I got a big boost of energy and foot drop is gone, walking normally and am able to bend down and tie my shoes. The 3rd exchange is the frosting on the cake! my symptoms are all gone and I am wanting to leave hospital right away. I hope your experience is like mine the hard part is staying in a bed when I feel great but because I entered a fall risk the nurses kept me on a short leash.
